This is probably silly, but I recently picked up a C64 to use as my “daily driver.” Parts for the C128 are pricey, and it doesn’t have nearly as much documentation as the C64, so I want to reduce the number of hours I put on it.

There was just one fault with the C64 I got, it was missing the 4 key cap. I found a very cheap replacement, but it does not match. I kind of like how silly it looks, it gives the whole system character.

Since it’s easier to find parts and whatnot, I think that I might attempt to do more to restore this system. It would probably be good to learn how to recap a motherboard, and I do like the idea of retrobrighting the key caps. They are extremely yellow B0452EBD-2468-407C-BF90-25756D022E48.jpg
